RDF Unique Identifier: https://id.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/D015640
Scope note: The opening and closing of ion channels due to a stimulus. The stimulus can be a change in membrane potential (voltage-gated), drugs or chemical transmitters (ligand-gated), or a mechanical deformation. Gating is thought to involve conformational changes of the ion channel which alters selective permeability.
Annotation: do not confuse with SENSORY GATING
